Uro Titan of Nature’s Wrath

Points Announcement: Streets of New Capenna

The format is reasonably stable at the moment, and there have been few big events with intermingled communities, so we’re only making a small set of changes for this release. In addition to this, the last points update was one of the larger ones we’ve done for some time. On top of these factors, if we’re bringing on a new committee member in the near future, it felt like we should involve them in any big pointing decisions.

Points Update NEO

Points Announcement: Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty

First of all to acknowledge the hit to UR decks:

Decks with the Izzet core (URx) were given a pass the previous points announcement; It was theorised that the large presence of Thassa’s Oracle combo was keeping away predators of URx decks.

Points Announcement: Kaldheim

Magic has been experiencing a lot of ups and downs lately and some formats are feeling it more than others. We are trying our best to keep this format healthy and fun for new and existing players alike. Oko, Thief of Crowns is now 2 Points. (from 1 to 2) To improve the health of the format we aim to tax UGx decks, and 4c Midrange decks containing Oko. He has been referred to an “army in a can” and has seen a lot of play even in combo decks like Thoracle and Time vault. Appearing in 29% of the top… Read More »Points Announcement: Kaldheim
